Angel Number 1111: 3 Spiritual Meanings of Seeing 1111

by Ryan Hart

Updated on April 22, 2019

In this post, you’ll discover the meaning of angel number 1111 and why you keep seeing 11, 111 or other repeating numbers everywhere you look.

In fact:

If you have seen this number multiple times it could be an important message from your guardian angel.

God sends angels to earth to guide us and deliver messages (Psalm 91:11). One way they might communicate with you is through Angel Numbers, or repeated number sequences.

Ready to find out what 1111 means?

Let’s get started.

1111 Meaning in the Bible

Angel number 1111 is a powerful message from your guardian angel. According to scripture, seeing 1111 is symbolic of God’s power and our faith in him.

Angel number 1 is very symbolic on its own, but when seen in a repeating sequence it is a sign that an angel is near.

Don’t ignore these numbers when you see them.

Meaning of Angel Number 1:

Angel number 1 is very symbolic in the bible. It represents God's power and self-sufficiency. God does not need us, but we need him. The title of the first book of the bible is Genesis which means origin or creation. On the first day of creation, God said: "Let there be light: and there was light" (Genesis 1:3). Also, the first commandment tells us that “Thou shalt have no other Gods before me” (Exodus 20:3). When you see the number 1 it is a reminder of God's power and that we must worship only one God.

When you see 1111 on a receipt, license plate or somewhere else, it could be an important message from your guardian angel.

Here’s what it means when you see angel number 1111:

1. You Are Too Critical of Yourself

Seeing 1111 means you like it when things are done correctly and are quick to notice when something is out of place.

You are extremely observant and not afraid to call attention to the mistakes of others.

For instance, it might bother you when you find spelling or grammar errors in books, articles, or social media posts. Sometimes these mistakes bother you so much that you can’t even finish reading what you started.

You are often confused about how some people can appear to be successful, yet make such simple mistakes. You believe that “God is in the detail,” meaning that whatever you do, you should do it well.

Sound familiar?

Well, that’s because the accomplishments you’ve achieved so far have come from hard work and determination. You were not born with a silver spoon in your mouth or handed opportunities like so many others.

So what’s it all mean?

From these experiences you’ve learned that details matter more than anything else.

For this reason, it’s no secret that your close friends and family know that you set very high standards for yourself and others. Some might say you are a perfectionist.

However, when you don’t live up to these expectations you are easily discouraged and lose confidence in yourself. You are your own worst critic.

More often than not, you are disappointed with your results because they don’t live up to the perfect vision in your head.

Angel number 1111 could be a wakeup call to stop being so hard on yourself and turn your attention toward God (Peter 5:7).

God created you for a specific purpose. Your job is to glorify him in everything you do, whether you are perfect or not.

Galatians 1:10 asks: “For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.”

When you focus your attention on perfectionism and pleasing others you lose sight of what’s most important: Christ.

The next time you see angel number 1111, take a moment and listen to your thoughts. Are you worried about impressing others or glorifying God?

2. Your Prayers Are About to Be Answered

Seeing angel number 1111 is symbolic of God’s power and a reminder that we must only worship one God. So, if you’ve been praying for God’s guidance in your life, this could mean he has heard your prayer (Isaiah 65:24).

When you see 11:11 you should pay very close attention to your surroundings. It could be a sign that an angel is near and your prayers are about to be answered.

How exciting is that?

Here’s what to do next:

Be on the lookout for clues that your prayer is coming to life. The results might not be exactly as you imagined, but take comfort in the fact that everything will turn out as it should.

It’s that simple.

On the other hand, if you feel like your prayers are going unanswered, seeing 1111 is a strong message to put your faith in God.

Mark 11:24 says: “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Angel number 1111 is most often seen by those who are dealing with financial or relationship problems in their life and are unsure where to turn for help (Psalm 91:15).

If you have been trying to fix these problems on your own, with no success, it is time to take a different approach. Remember, angel number 1111 is symbolic of God’s power in the bible.

God answers our prayers only when the things we want will glorify him and serve others. So when you see 11:11 on the clock, this is a sign that your prayers will be answered when you put your focus on Him.

When your prayers are in alignment with God’s will, you don’t have to worry about when or if they will be answered (John 5:14-15). He will provide.

Your guardian angel is sending you a reminder that everything is going to plan and that you must be patient.

3. Someone in Heaven is Watching Over You

If you are seeing 1111, it’s a sign that someone in heaven is watching over you.

Although we cannot communicate with our loved ones in heaven, God sends angels to guide us and send messages (Psalm 91:11).

Angel number 1111 could be a message about someone in the afterlife.

Let me explain:

To determine who this message is about depends on when and where you saw angel number 1111.

Think back to the last time you noticed this number. What were you doing just before or immediately after seeing 11:11?

These clues will help you identify who is sending you a message from heaven.

Once you’ve got it cracked, there could be another meaning of seeing 1111.

For example, if you are feeling discouraged, this could be a sign that someone in heaven wants you to keep your chin up. Remember that your time on earth is only temporary and your reward will be delivered in heaven.

This is a sign that things will get better.

It is very likely that a loved one in heaven has seen what is on the other side and are trying to send you good news.

Not only will you eventually be reunited with this person in heaven, but much more awaits you.

Your guardian angel is using these numbers to remind you that a treasure is waiting for you heaven:

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

The next time you see 1111, remember to remain faithful even when times are tough. In heaven, cars do not breakdown, appliances don’t quit working, and thieves do not steal our prized possessions.

So, I think we can all agree that seeing 11:11 is a positive sign.

When was the last time you saw angel number 1111? Please leave a comment and let me know.
I’ve been seeing 11:11 everyday. I just saw it June 21 11:11. I’m so curious why I keep seeing 11:11
I see 1111 constantly and most angel Numbers I see have a 1 in it somewhere, usually I see these right after prayer or in response to what I was just thinking. This was a number that actually helped me turn back to Christ, after years of going my own way.

Last nite in bed from nowhere a sound of music i turned and my clock had 11:11 i said a prayer and today making breakfast for my special needs daughter and 11:11 on stove clock but music out of now to make me turn to see clock

I have seen this times countless times and I have never taken it serious. Sometimes I see it on a car stereo time, phone or even other device I can't remember. I laugh sometimes then snap and post on social media for clout until a freind sent me a DM not to joke with it and she sent me this link to help myself which I didn't do until today when I was having a hard time and the sign came again, not just did it show as a time on my phone but also it the birthday of my sister whose trouble was coming to me that was when I stopped thinking it a coincidence but a sign so I searched my chat history and here I'm realizing I have been wasting my time doing my thing instead of focusing on God who has it all. Everything written here with the scriptures combine is what is happening to me at the moment. I feel used by me. I'm grateful I am here and I know my life will be better from now on cos I am embarking on self healing... Please feel free to send me links that will help me with things to do about myself. God bless the author. Now I can rest cos I found assurance and peace from what I have read.
My bank balance has been $11.11 for over a week. Today I heard a prophesy on Facebook (!) that called me by name and said my blessings will come suddenly. Yes! I do believe this.

Just a little bit ago when I picked up my phone and that's what the number was on there but I probably see this number at least once a day
John McGoldrick III
Great information. Put me at ease. Thank you and God Bless You.
My daughters birthday is 11/11 and for the last several weeks I see the number everywhere. On the clock, signs, license plates. Or even just the 11. I’ve said that my daughter is my miracle baby and my gift from God! After reading this article I believe it so much more.
I had just checked my mail. One of the pieces of mail I received was from Publishers Clearinghouse stating that I'm have a chance to get on the final winner's selection list. I started crying and praying that I would win this time and after I got done praying I happened to look at the clock and it was 11:11 a.m. I'm hoping that this is a positive sign!
I have been seeing 1111 on my fone clock.. Sometimes i see it on micro oven clock. Thank you for this clearity. Regards Patricia
I was born on 11/11 (80) I had a 1% chance to make it and did! My sister (5/11), my father (7/11) and my uncle (4/11) were all also born on the ELEVENTH day. My oldest son was born 11/1 /07 (Scorpio like momma) The ELEVENTH month. My youngest son was born 3/4/11. (Pisces like daddy) The ELEVENTH year. I feel like I've seen 1111 my entire life. I married a veteran and share my special day with Veterans Day. And it couldn't be better entertained with who I became became of marrying into the military family. 1111 is my lucky number for sure!
I've been seeing 11:11 almost every day for about a year now. And as of late, I'm seeing doubles if other numbers (15:15; 17:17 etc), daily.
Thanks for the beautiful article and sharing your light.

I was so inspired about the answer that I receive about 1111. A lot of the answers that I receive about 1111 was a match to my self and personality.
Hi Ryan, I keep being lead back to your website. I see 1:11 and 11:11 every single day on a clock, tv or somewhere. In addition, I also see other repetitive numbers like 333, 555 but it always is referenced by time. For some reason 333 reminds me of my dad who passed in 2015. I wish I knew for sure what these numbers mean. They always surprise me and make me smile. So going with God is answering my prayers and just maybe my dad is trying to say everything is going to be okay. Thank you for sharing your prayers with me. Do you know the biblical meaning of 333 and/or 555? Warmly, Stacey Pati
Love this article. My new grandson is called Mark. (quote on the pink picture) And one of my guardian angels is Matthew. (another quote) Amazing. I'm seeing 11.11 everywhere. My phone, the car, oven etc.
now i have a big problem that i don't even know what to do. I am an ofw in taiwan, i am from philippines. I had a problem in my current job. They treat me unfair. I am looking for help but i felt like they don't want to help me. They just ignore me. My job is very important. I have big family in my province I am the only provider. My father is deceased 10yrs ago. And now i think im in between to quit or to proceed. I am so down, i think nobody is understand. But when i saw a post on facebook ang look on the clock, exactly 11:11. Then I immediately read it. I cried, that there is someone is with me, i think its my father. Sending me a message.. .I am so thankful that i read these..

I just saw it 30 July 2020 11:11pm while listening to a meditation
I've been seeing 11 11 constantly for over a month now. I believe now more than ever God is telling my babies are coming and for me to go back to school. I've been very discouraged about going back to school etc. However it's early in the morning when I see 11 11.
I saw 1111 on car in TV show

I've been seeing 111, 1111, 444, 222, EVERYWHERE, liscence plates, phones, home addresses e even on my stock holding page.
I seen the number on my stove clock and my cell phone of 11:11. I was feeling down with my son gone and wanting him to come back and talk to me and not be upset and hurt. I want to help him from a mothers loved for him of being out from prison. I stead of leaving with a girl he just meant for 2 months in another state. And a week before I've seen 2 tan beautiful doves in from of my yard. Why??
I’ve known for years what the meaning of 1111 means. Most recently I was behind a car with 1112 on lic plate, explained what it meant to wife. I didn’t tell her why me. I have squandered my inheritance ( a great deal) since I have been praying and visiting the Blessed Sacrament and novenas to St Michael Archangel for a special reason also my guardian angel for recuperation of it and to handle it with more intelligence. Many things have been happening in my life with unasked for help . I even find my self saying the rosary several times a day without even planning to. I discovered some activity about my wife that would have made me leave her but amazingly was able to forgive her without a second thought. And not even bagering her about it. That’s it for now.
I had a friend who passed from MS quite some time ago and her favorite number was 1111, so for the past 20 years or so whenever I see this number I always say hello Patty.
I read your article. I saw everything from one, two, and three of the four number ones in a row. Where is your explanation for the fourth and final 1?Did I miss something here?
Donkare Juliet
Thank you very much for the great news. I saw 1111 at work on computer..on 2 different computers same day but on different locations.
i see 11:11 on my phone when i check the time or turn it on. I believe its my grandmother contacting me because her anniversary was august 21st and it was pretty tough on me. Or i think it might be prayeers coming true because i talked to god and asked him for some things and prayed for people i cared about and wanted god to help me with some of my relationships and adjustments . I don't know but this makes me happy to know my angel might be near because i really miss her ☺️

I went to the store on Saturday . Everything I bought the total amount was 1111 . This morning the clock was 1111 . Thank you .
I see 11:11 on the clock quite often. Last time I saw it was a week ago. Every time I have seen it something goes wrong with either myself or someone in my family. I have started to be afraid of seeing this number due to the outcome of problems that arise within days of seeing it. I have tried to stay positive but again, within days something goes very wrong. I see it as a warning sign.
Last year, I went back to school. It was very stressful. I felt that I just want to quit. I prayed to God and ask him for guidance. I open the bible and it lead me to Mark 11:24. After reading it the message. I cried and thanked God for always being there. This week there was uncertainty feeling about what to do with my life. Everyday I was praying. I have encounter constant number 2121 which at first didnt even mind to check the angels message. I continue to pray first guidance.On Sept 11, I did encounter 1515 which I didnt mind then When I went out of the house. There was an white butterfly near my car door then when I turn on my car the dashboard odometer showed 222222. I realized I have to check this constant numbers. I read the angels messages then I was brought to your website. I saw the verse Psalm 91:11 and Mark 11:24 which made me realized that it was an affirmation of God's love and guidance. I wept like child praying and thanking him for his eternal love.
My first book launch party/signing was on 11/11/11. It was supposed to be another date but was changed by owner of venue. Everyone thought that meant something but not sure what
Angela Anand

Ryan Hart
It could mean that someone in heaven is watching over you. Whenever you see the numbers 1111 they are sending you a reminder that you are not alone. Do you have a loved one who is watching over you from heaven?

Thank you LORD for the reassurance and sending it through Ryan Heart. Amen🙏❤️

First of all I was born on 11/11/1948. For the past 3 months I’ve been seeing 1111. I shared with my family friends and church members that God speaks to me when I see 1111. I have the assurance that he heard my prayers and he’s working it out in my favor. I love the Lord. I give him Praise and I’m so grateful for my walk with him. He’s never left me and I will never leave him
My dad passed away today. Me and my son were talking about my dad probably right as he was passing. Later same day I see 11:11 for the first time. I believe he was a guardian angel today , telling me he was watching me.
I am born on 11/11... In my journey with God I learned that God is speaking to me when I am seeing double numbers when I see it on a clock... Some people see me as an angel, they see wings behind me and telling/asking are you send by God ?!? Amazing to be an instrument in Gods hand!! God bless you more...!!

I thinking about basketball and my wife God has worked in my life forever I didn’t always know God but he knew me. I’ve been seeing 1111 alot I think it’s when I see my future wife and basketball because God has showed me my ex is gonna be my wife in a vision I’m so thankful for this in the vision I was telling her what God did for me because before I was saved I was getting into so much problems and being a born again Christian it’s still hard but ik God is with me and I love our Father and I thank him for everything even the hard times thank Jesus for my family my wife Khali and all my brothers and sisters all over the world in Jesus name amen🙏🏾!!!
I have been seeing this number for over 2 years now and when I see them ii have never really accepted them or took the time out to see what they mean. Now that I know I need and should accept them I will see what my Angel's or God is trying to convey to me. Thank you for this article, I know something great is in store for my family and I. Blessings to everyone
I have been seeing one one one one for approximately two months now on a regular basis. I have been going through a transition, being newly retired. I have A schedule of walking and doing yoga 3 to 6 days per week. After my rigorous exercises, it never fails that approximately after three weeks, I am totally exhausted and feel ill. So , I rest up for 2 to 4 days and I feel healthy again. My husband said that this illness is due to overworking. Last evening I prayed to God to relieve me , and direct me. Today I felt wonderful and realized part of the reason when I am sick I am inside the house. When I went out this afternoon it seemed to balance me out and I feel great. I no now that seeing 1111 is a sign that I do not need to work so hard to have balance.

Whenever I see 11:11 I always get some financial issues.
I see 111 1111 and sequence of numbers all the time, just not sure what it means if anything...
This morning I woke up to the numbers 1,111.11 I instantly felt there was meaning behind this. When I read Your prayers are going to be answered, be patient. It made perfectly Great sense I am in the interview process for 2 jobs, and currently working. I have been stressing over which job should I take if offered both, and when is it confirmed enough for me to notify my current job. I asked GOD to guide me. But the section I read above let's me know everything is going to work in the order in which it should. I believe 111111 let's me know that GOD is already guiding me. I feel so blessed and excited about what's to come!
I've been seeing triple numbers alot on especially digital clocks. I sent you a message on fb asking more about you then I noticed the time was 11:11

So thank you for your article. This all so new and a bit overwhelming. Very grateful and looking forward to being more focused.

I've just seen 11:11 at work, sometimes at home, and on my phone. I also see a lot of repeating numbers throughout the day. Right now i'm having both financial and relationship problems, so this article really provided a great perspective for me to read and understand why i'm seeing 11:11 a lot lately. Thank you!

Thank you for this article, I have been seeing numbers for a couple of months now. Today was crazy since I woke up, it has been 1111 all over the place and yes its November 11th but also things that are not connected to the date is coming up 111. I do check my surroundings and what I am thinking about at the time and it is true why I see these numbers as it fits into my situation at hand.

Never seen 1111 or 11-11. I have seen just a 1 attaches with other numbers. Have had one beautiful birds appearing in front of me out of no wear a few times when I am under extreme stress because of my severe bad cancer concerns and I often think the angel bird appearing to calm me. The one bird appearance have gotten me to one less stressful scary upsetting day specially after treatments and afterward being home alone fatigue and exhausted. Still have the cancer I worrying about the next round of testing, treatments, bad news report. I have been praying for many, many, months.

Boss, this is all crazy what's happening with me. 7 months ago my dad bought me a SIM card, the number of which I had seen few days before in my dream. It has the sequence 413 repeating twice in it, at first I thought it's just another fancy number, but then on , I kept seeing 111&1111 several times every day and it's 7 months now, it has started to feel totally wierd and nasty. Also, feels like someone has been watching me all this while, I even had a few OBEs(Out of Body Experiences) during this same time and during the mercury retrograde ofmid 2020 , I was full of anxiety and everything, also, in one of those OBEs I heard a voice (couldn't see the body!) trying to guide me. But that was the last time I heard the voice. I know all this is crazy but trust me when I say it all happened and is still happening
I’ve been seeing 11:11 2:22 and 4:44 all day today .. I was at home thinking about my car that appears to be breaking down and upset that money issues are making Christmas hard or could for my little family ... and a little envious my best friend texting I just put a grand in this card still isnt enough for the kids .. she has one child .

Weird I never right amd own my thoughts or things I see
